Camp Warren Levis

Camp Warren Levis, a current day portion of the area known as Rocky Fork in Godfrey, Illinois was one of the first "Free" state stops for slaves escaping Missouri as early as 1816. The area continued to serve in this capacity as an Underground Railroad stop and escapee community until well after the Missouri Emancipation Proclamation of 1865. Various family stories, community memories and documents attest to the significance of the area. Since 1921 part of the Rocky Fork area has been used as a Boy Scout Camp however, evidence still exists of the escapees and their helpers.
